My sister came over today and mentioned her daughter ( my niece ) has a lump just under her areola (nipple). My niece I guess said her breast was hurting about a couple of weeks ago and my sister told her " Maybe you hit yourself (she is a major tomboy) and its sore". My niece never said anything again and my sister thought nothing of it!!!! NOW...she has a lump and it causes my niece pain.(not enough to slow her down but she mentioned it hurt a little bit)My sister said "It feels like a lump or knot of some sort and it was the exact size of the areola...

Hi Lisa, it sounds like a breast bud. From everything I've heard here they feel hard and can cause pain.

It never hurts to get this confirmed with a doctor though. How is your niece feeling now? And what did the doctor say?
